Window Safety Films for Home, Office or School
Choose the Right Film Type
There are three main types of window film: Low E Glass (LowE), High Performance Glass (HiPer) and Dual Function Glass (DG). LowE glass is designed to reduce heat transfer through the glass by reflecting infrared light back into the room. HiPer glass is designed to reflect visible light and allow more heat to pass through the glass. DG glass has both LowE and HiPer properties.
Install it Correctly
If you install window film incorrectly, you will not achieve the desired results. It is very important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully.
To prevent sunburn, apply sunscreen 30 minutes before going outside. You should use at least SPF 15 and reapply every two hours.
Maintain it Properly
If you live in a hot climate, you need to make sure your window film is installed correctly so it will last longer. It’s recommended that you install the film between May and September.
Protect Your Home from Sun Damage
If you live in an area with high levels of sunlight, window film will help reduce the damage caused by sun exposure. It helps block out up to 99% of ultraviolet (UV) radiation, which can cause skin cancer and premature aging.
Reduce Heat Loss During Summer Months
In addition to protecting your home from the damaging effects of the sun, window film can help save energy costs. A study conducted at the University of California found that homes equipped with window film reduced cooling costs by as much as $1,000 per year.
Help Prevent Skin Cancer
If you live in an area where there is high exposure to the sun, consider using window film to reduce your risk of skin cancer. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, people who spend more than two hours outside each day without sunscreen are at increased risk for developing melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer.
Increase Property Value
Window films can also help increase property value by protecting your home from fading and cracking caused by sunlight. In addition, they can make your home appear more energy efficient, helping you save money on heating and cooling costs.
